The school life provides an opportunity for you to meet a lot of friends and you won't feel alone. They make you feel like a family, which causes you not to miss your own family at times. The first place I would take them would be the common room area, as that is one of the most favorite places for me as a boarding school student. I find great joy being there as Mr. Brendan and the dorm team spend time with us, watch movies, play video games and provide us with the opportunity to stay up late and hang out with my boarding friends as they understand that the current pandemic is mentally challenging for us at times. Moreover, we learn how to cook in that space by making pizza, cotton candy, smoothies and other tasty treats!

In my opinion, I would have to note the school's state-of-the-art gymnasium. Being that I am an active student at the school, who is involved in various sport-related activities, the gym is such a calming and relaxing location to relieve any personal stress. In addition, there are large windows within the space that offers a great view of the Markham community as well as the beautiful sunlight. Moreover, the gym offers great memories that I share with my friends as we play games or take part in competitive sports, such as badminton or volleyball. Moreover, it is clean, safe, well-secured and provides many diverse opportunities to play a wide range of sports and team-building activities. Finally, the acoustics in the gym is quite awesome for great music!

The first place that I would take a group of visitors to see, would be the school dormitory. The reason why I selected this location is because this is where most of the students' friendships are formed. The memories that are formulated in the dorm experience allows a strong bond to be created and a sense of belonging amongst staff and students. As I continue to reflect, some of the greatest memories in the common room space area are hanging out with my dorm mates, playing table tennis or board games, watching horror movies until 1:00 a.m. on the weekends and learning how to cook with the dorm team. Moreover, there is a separate study hall space that offers the opportunity to communicate with your family or simply enjoy some personal time. Finally, the dorm space has 24/7 security monitoring to ensure the safety of all dorm staff and students.

If I had to give a tour of the school to potential visitors, then I would like to take them to my classroom. The interior design of my classroom, the students and the teacher within it, are all of the reasons of what I would like to highlight this to potential visitors as they demonstrate the positive ambiance that makes my learning at the school a tremendous success. In addition, I would like to take them to our school's dance studio where they would be able to see the amazing dance talents of my classmates, who can perform, hip-hop, ballet and tap. Finally, I would like to take them on a tour of the school's gymnasium, where they would be able to see the various sports being played by our students with sheer passion.

The first place I would take a group of visitors would be the classrooms. The reason why I stated the classrooms is because the visitors would be able to visually enjoy the dynamic learning and interactions amongst the faculty and students. Secondly, my next favorite location would be the student residence to see the state of the art recreation room where memories are created amongst dorm students. Within the recreation room, dorm students enjoy playing table tennis, watching movies, air hockey and foosball. Moreover, students enjoy late night socials that make living in the dorm quite fun. Finally, another favorite place I would visitors would be the gym and dance studio, where students enjoy ballet, yoga, karate, badminton, volleyball and other related sport-activities. The gym is quite huge with beautiful glass view windows that on look the Markham community.
